Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Tom Brady

It’s been nine weeks since Tom Brady was last named the Former Michigan Athlete of the Week. That seems like a long time for a QB on a 7-3 team who is averaging a ridiculous 327 passing yards per game with a season rating of 102.5. This week, Brady had little competition for our recognition as he passed for 234 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions in the Patriots 34-3 blowout over the Chiefs. Kansas City made things difficult for Brady early in the game, sacking him twice and forcing a fumble, but two touchdown passes to TE Rob Gronkowski opened things up around halftime. Brady’s Patriots now hold a two game lead in the AFC East over the Jets and Bills.
Honorable Mention: Stephen Schilling made his first career NFL start on Sunday in a 31-20 loss to the Bears. He got the starting nod due to four or five key injuries along the San Diego offensive line, but I’m sure Schilling wasn’t complaining. After being drafted 201st overall in the 2011 draft, Schilling was waived by the Chargers early in the season before resigning to the practice squad several days later. The Chargers only gained 54 yards on the ground against the Bears, but Schilling and the O-line didn’t give up a sack, either. His current and former teammate, second-round draft pick Jonas Mouton, has been on Injured Reserve since the third week of the season.
